Australian Life

An outdoor gallery looking beyond the iconic images of our country

Produced by the City of Sydney

With a unique focus on who we are as a nation, the 22 finalists in this year’s Australian Life look beyond the iconic images of our country to reveal new insights into our identity.

From a close-up moment of reflection, to a wide-angle on our collective hopes and dreams, these stunning large format prints are as diverse, interesting and surprising as Australia itself.

Each of the finalists and the 2016 Judges’ pick for the $10,000 prize were chosen by a panel of photographers, artists and curators, from work submitted by emerging and professional photographers across the country.
